Dear Fairytale Friend,
For the past 2 1/2 years
, a team of 140 volunteers
have dedicated their time and talents to be main characters, behind-the-scenes assistants, extras, prop makers, and makeup artists for these 3 photographic fairy stories: Snow White, Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty.
50 of these photographs will be part of my very first one-woman photography exhibit at Translations Art Gallery in downtown Canton, opening to the public on Friday, June 6, 2014.
But there will be no happily ever after without your help.
WHY DO I NEED YOUR HELP?
We will be producing a 75-page full-color book
of photographs, with three original fairytales by Margy Vogt, Jason Myers, and Andrew Kozma, beautifully crafted based on the images we’ve created. This book will allow us to share this show with everyone out-of-town, and beyond the close of the exhibit. Matting and framing is expensive, and we want this exhibit to be amazing, and travel to other galleries over the coming months.
HOW YOU CAN HELP:
Support this project on Kickstarter. In exchange for your support you will receive items such as 11 x 17 prints of photographs from the fairytale, a copy of the fairytale book, props from the photoshoots, and many other options. I’m also really excited to offer photo sessions for those contributing at the $200 level. I want to make you the star of your own story! You’ll have access to my full costume closet (including some pieces from the fairytale photos) and locations picked specifically for you.
